World Anti-Doping Agency

The World Anti-Doping Agency's (WADA) mission is to promote, co-ordinate and monitor on an international basis, the fight against doping in sport in all it forms. As part of its strategic objectives, WADA has identified both education and research as priorities.
The Social Sciences Research Grant Program has thus been created to encourage research in the social sciences to obtain information which will enable more efficient doping prevention strategies.

The 2005 competition constitutes a pilot project with a maximum of US$ 60,000 in grants. The future funding of the program will largely depend on the interest expressed by the research community and the quality of the research proposals received during the pilot project. All proposals submitted must be related to one or more of the stated program priorities, assigned on an annual basis to certain topics, research subjects and protocols.

This information is detailed in the Guidelines for Applicants document, which is published along with the Call for Proposals on the WADA website under the Education heading or via the link below.

WADA awards research grants to organizations of all types (universities, colleges, small businesses, for-profit, etc.). Deadline for submission for the 2005 competition is March 31, 2005.
